The 15th anniversary of ARTBO | International Art Fair of Bogota, will take place on a new set of dates from September 19 to the 22, 2019 with a preview and vernissage on September 18. 

For the first time, the fair will coincide with the 45th Salón Nacional de Artistas, the largest exhibition program in Colombia organized by the Ministry of Culture; and the 10th Premio Luis Caballero by the Instituto Distrital de las Artes, a prize that commissions site-specific works to renowned Colombian artists throughout the city.

The fair’s unique model, of both commercial and non-commercial sections, and its focus on quality and diversity, has given it one of the most refreshing perspectives within the international art fair circuit.
